Maldives President Welcomes ICC's Arrest Warrants for Israeli Leaders

The President of the Republic of Maldives, Dr. Mohammed Muizzu, has publicly expressed his support for the International Criminal Court's (ICC) recent filing of arrest warrants against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant. This move by the ICC Prosecutor marks a significant step in addressing the alleged war crimes committed in the occupied Palestinian territories.
In a tweet, President Muizzu highlighted the importance of upholding international law and ensuring accountability for actions in conflict zones. He emphasized that no country is above the law, and those responsible for war crimes must be held accountable.
"As a State Party to the Rome Statute, the Maldives is confident that the Prosecutor's Office has gathered enough evidence to prove Israel has conducted war crimes and crimes against humanity in Gaza," President Muizzu stated. He reaffirmed the Maldives' commitment to supporting the Palestinian people and exploring every avenue to advocate for their rights on the international stage.
The President's remarks underscore the Maldives' longstanding support for the Palestinian cause and its active role in international legal and human rights issues. This development has the potential to influence international diplomatic relations and bring renewed attention to the situation in Gaza.
The ICC's action is seen as a pivotal moment in the pursuit of justice for the Palestinian people, aiming to bring those responsible for alleged atrocities to justice and uphold the principles of international law.
